Twitter accused of enabling Taliban expansion
FOX Business’ Lydia Hu gives details on the Taliban’s use of Twitter.
Twitter announced this week it is testing out a new feature that will warn users if it determines a conversation might become "intense."
"Ever want to know the vibe of a conversation before you join in?" Twitter Support tweeted on Wednesday. "We’re testing prompts on Android and iOS that give you a heads up if the convo you’re about to enter could get heated or intense. This is a work in progress as we learn how to better support healthy conversation."
TWITTER TO PAY $809.5M TO SETTLE SECURITIES SUIT
An image included in the post gives an idea of what users can expect from the alerts.
The initial tweet used as an example reads, "fyi not all college athletes will get rich just because they can sign endorsement deals now and earn money from their NIL."
A respondent then replies, "Maybe not, but at least they finally have the opportunity to gain some financial benefit from the physical and mental sacrifice. These deals will surely impact how coaches recruit and players commit though. Mo rules, mo problems."
In between those two messages, a bold alert from Twitter says, "heads up," warning, "conversations like this can be intense."
A second phone alert shows another notification that pops up and covers all but the initial tweet and states, "Let's look out for each other."
The alert then tells users to "remember the human," adding, "communication with respect makes Twitter better." It then says that "facts matter," saying that "checking the facts helps everyone."
